There has been a lot of changes impacting cannabis consumer access, products and technology over the last year, and amidst all of the hubbub over the industry, it’s time we had a party for cannabis consumers to celebrate us and our recent victories. The Cannabis Consumers Coalition is hosting a cannabis consumer appreciation and educational event on September 28th, 2019 from 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm. The focus will be on mindful consumption and we will have a variety of speakers speaking on consumer-related topics including home cultivation, cannabis delivery new to Colorado, and even mapping your genes to the strains that are best for you.
When: Sept 28th, 2019
Where: Disclosed after RSVP'd
Dr. Nicco Reggente, Founder and CEO of Strain Genie and Neuroscientist
Amy Sharp, Founder and CEO Sharp Solutions Courier
Tim Flanagan, Founder and CEO of X Hydro Supply and Award Winning Cultivator
Cindy Sovine, Founder and CEO Sovine Consulting and Founder and President Utopia Natural Healing Lounge
Neuroscientist and Founder and CEO of Strain Genie, Dr. Nicco Reggente, will be speaking about his company’s technology that uses DNA to determine which strains are best suited for individuals based on genetic factors such as predispositions towards certain diseases and ailments. We thought this was interesting and wanted to learn more and figured others may want to as well, so we are bringing Nicco here to tell us more about this! What we do know is that Strain Genie uses current DNA tests and does their own testing but does not share data and will provide disclaimers stating such to those interesting in trying out the new technology.
Home grows are a hot topic nationally, with many interests attacking cannabis consumer rights to cultivate at home, and the Cannabis Consumers Coalition has been a longtime advocate of home grows, even working on policy stakeholder groups working to protect cannabis consumer rights to cultivate at home. Tim Flanagan, who is the Founder and CEO of X Hydro Supply, an online grow supply retailer and, will be speaking about current technologies available for home grows and providing some tips on properly setting up home grows. His submission of home-grown craft cannabis into the Grow-Off earned him Third Place in the Microgrows Terpenes.
Amy Sharp, Founder and CEO of Sharp Solutions Courier, will be speaking about home delivery services that is now available to consumers. House Bill 19-1234 finally legalized delivery services and Amy has been at the helm of it all and is part of the rulemaking for the implementation of the bill for the Marijuana Enforcement Division. She is a long-term contributing cannabis community member and entrepreneur along with her husband Devin Sharp of Buddy Boy Brands. Amy will be speaking about the new options available to consumers under this new law.
Cindy Sovine has been a longtime trusted ally of the Cannabis Consumers Coalition. She has always championed cannabis consumer rights and has helped us have a seat at the table at very important conversations, including when GW Pharma tried to take over CBD, and she was able to change words and language to protect patients and consumers. Most recently, she has launched a spa and social consumption lounge called Utopia Natural Healing Lounge. She has fought tirelessly for social use and was essential in finally passing a very inclusive social use bill, House Bill 1230, that paves the way for a myriad of creative ways for businesses to incorporate cannabis consumption on their premises and will be providing details on what that looks like for consumers moving forward.
